From the Collection
Watercolour over traces of pencil heightened with bodycolour on buff paper. Prout lived in Hastings from 1837 to 1844 for health reasons but stylistically this drawing appears to be earlier. His first documented visit to the town is in August1815 but he may have been there earlier. A similar watercolour study of fishing boats on the beach at Hastings is in the Tate Gallery (T1010).
